It seems like there are more and more patent lawsuits with each day that passes. Apple in this case is the predator, while Motorola is the prey. They are suing over the multitouch on the majority of their Android smartphones.
As well as the multitouch, Apple is also suing over:
- Object-Oriented System Locator System
- Touch Screen Device, Method, and Graphical User Interface for Determining Commands by Applying Neuristics
- Method and Apparatus for Displaying and Accessing Control and Status Information in a Computer System.
- Support for Custom User-Interaction Elements in a Graphical, Event-Driven Computer System.
This lawsuit will take a while, so don't expect an immediate result. If Motorola ends up losing, they will have to change these aspects about their new phones or pay a very large sum of money to Apple. Check out all the info on the patent lawsuit on the source link shown below.
